Jade Tree

We were just saying Jade Tree Records is back (though they say don't call it a comeback). The label has now uploaded their entire catalog to bandcamp with full streams of all the albums and downloads available for $5 or less.

That means if your iTunes is missing say, The Promise Ring's Nothing Feels Good, Lifetime's Jersey's Best Dancers, Jets to Brazil's Orange Rhyming Dictionary, Pedro the Lion's Control, Cap'n Jazz's Analphabetapolothology, Owls' self-titled, Fucked Up's Hidden World, Joan of Arc's How Memory Works, Avail's 4AM Friday, New End Original's Thriller, Paint It Black's Paradise, Kid Dynamite's self-titled, or Young Widows' Settle Down City, you can now easily remedy that. Plus there's tons more, including new releases like the upcoming Dark Blue single.

In related news, Owls are touring and hitting NYC on July 11 at Bowery Ballroom with Hop Along and Glocca Morra (tickets). And you can hear Pedro the Lion frontman David Bazan reworking some of that band's material on his new album and tour with the Passenger String Quartet.

Check out their bandcamp here and stream a few of the classics below...


The Promise Ring - Nothing Feels Good

Lifetime - Jersey's Best Dancers

Jets to Brazil - Orange Rhyming Dictionary

No Idea reissued both Lifetime LPs already - but Jade Tree should maybe do a 7" series.

Yeah, my Ipod is missing watered down pop rock disguised as punk and pop punk because an ex-edge guy from Delaware decided to get in on the ground floor for the Warped Tour/punk broke big crowd. And it will remain missing that shit.

are you like 45 years old?

^ No I'm like younger.

What's the point to your question? That I'm old? I'm not old. In the dumbass fantasyland ageist hardcore scene you inhabit and are the epitome of with your wiseass question I am, but know this:

If I was 45 years old, I have seen and done more than you will ever see and do you born in 1984 or later little shit who didn't even know what music was when I was going to the last great NYHC shows. You will break down and cry one night about how your life was 10% or less interesting as mine and the lives of those just before, in, just after my generation when you turn 45 16-20 years from now.

Seriously I bet you're like 28 which means you probably got into hardcore in 2000-04. 'Sucks to be you.
